Springtime is here, and with that comes allergies for many people. Depending on the season and where you live, allergies can be much more than just a causal annoyance. They can be downright disruptive of your daily life and get in the way of you focusing at work, keeping up with exercise, and enjoying the great outdoors.
Here’s a look at the most common allergy symptoms and why they occur in our bodies.
Runny and Stuffy Nose
The nose is often the most problematic part of the body when you have allergies. You can experience nasal congestion, a stuffy nose, or a runny nose – all of which are common allergy symptoms. These issues are caused by swollen membranes inside of the nose. To alleviate these symptoms, drink lots of water and try Seagate’s Olive Leaf Nasal Spray. During times of allergy flare-ups, use the spray every three to four hours.
Sneezing is a common allergy symptom and a very annoying one to deal with throughout the day. The sneezing occurs when nasal passage membranes become irritated by allergens and the body attempts to get rid of them. Avoid indoor and outdoor allergy triggers to prevent sneezing, and take Seagate Olive Leaf Plus for maximum immune support during allergy season.
It is also typical for a person’s eyes to be watery and irritated when suffering from allergies. You can ease sore eyes with a cool, damp washcloth or by using eye drops to lubricate them.
Itchy Eyes, Nose and Throat
Allergens are irritants that make sensitive parts of the body red and itchy. The eyes, nose, and throat often become itchy when exposed to allergen substances. We recommend Olive Leaf Throat Spray in raspberry-spearmint or the unflavored version to ease throat itchiness and soreness due to allergies.
Some people experience coughing as an allergy symptom, which can lead them to think they have the common cold instead of seasonal allergies. The body coughs to expel substances from the airways that are causing swelling and irritation. It is a natural reaction but can lead to breathing problems over time, such as shortness of breath.
If you have a headache around this time of the year, it may be due to allergies as well. Allergy headaches often feel differently from other types of headaches and are marked by pain behind the sinuses and eyes. The head area feels pressure due to built-up mucous and blockages in the sinuses. You can find natural relief for headaches with essential oils, dietary changes, and rest.
However, sometimes allergy symptoms become so severe that they can become life threatening. This is more the case with food allergies and insect stings rather than seasonal allergies. However, any allergic reaction accompanied by a drop in blood pressure, skin rash, nausea and vomiting, rapid or weak pulse, or loss of consciousness may require immediate medical attention.
